One of my favourite expressions to use occaisionally when I disagree with someone, or am exasperated with what they are saying is, "I'm not even listening in English anymore."

I guess that doesn't really make me nerdy, but whatever..

You know you're a language nerd when....
you start writing grammar drills in the steam on the glass in the shower in Russian, German, and what you
remember of Georgian.

You know you're a REAL nerd when you take a picture of it because you made a really complicated sentence in
German and discovered that it is grammatically correct and apparently sounds very professional and advanced.
(also because writing it down is too conventional :)

When you consider changing your trip's dates so that you gained an extra hour for the 6WC due to the timezones :D

When you get a new smartphone, and aside from the fact that it gives you much better
access to so many language-learning applications, you're especially excited that it
finally comes in SIX different languages instead of three, and one of them is even your
TL!

You know that you are a language nerd when you actually love the fact that you couldn't
find the building for the driving class that you were supposed to take tonight because
having your mother drive you around, looking for the place allows you to pass a couple of
Arabic restaurants and markets with the titles written in Arabic script, a Chinese
church(with real characters--no pinyin!), and several Mexican stores--
'templos'(churches), 'supermercados'(supermarkets), and 'carnicerias'(meatmarkets). You
can practically feel your Spanish improving as you are forced to read these glorious
signs quickly.

Keep in mind that this is in Arizona. I might have expected the Spanish(although that
certainly doesn't mean that I am any less excited about it!), but not the Chinese or the
Arabic! Great day!
